National Grandparent's Day is Sunday, September 13th. If I get around to it on that day I will be celebrating by posting some pictures and a little bit about my family's grandparents and great grandparents (to some).
Speaking of grandparents... grandparents.com is a great website that you can go to to get everything you need to make Grandparent's Day special.
We had some fun with a new technology on Grandparents.com and used it to send emails to them with a recording of my boys voices. All you have to do is go HERE on Grandparents.com dial their phone number, put in a passcode, and record your message, hang up, click finished on the computer, and send it to any email you like. Simple! Their grandparents can now send my children a message back if they want to using the same "Your Voice" technology. You can also download and save the message to listen to over and over again if you like. It is all done for FREE!
HERE is the message my boys and I did for their grandparents.
